Really enjoyed this second in the Mr Wong series. Number one was good, but this mystery kept me guessing until the end. A solid whodunit.

Subject: Delightful Little Mystery
Before i even decided to watch the first movie in the series ('Mr Wong, Detective') i did a little research and discovered that the first movie is considered the best in the series but i must say after watching 'The Mystery of Mr Wong' i was pleasantly surprised, not only was it not as bad as had been implied by various movie guides but i thought it was far superior to its predecessor. It was a delightful little mystery that had me guessing to the last minute.
